HC notice to Health Ministry, university over cancellation of counselling

Chandigarh, June 4 The Punjab and Haryana High Court has issued notices to the Union Health Ministry (Department of AYUSH) on a petition filed by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Homeopathic College, Ludhiana challenging the orders issued by the ministry and the Central Council of Homoeopathy, New Delhi, to cancel the counselling session for 27 seats of MD (Homoeopathy) earmarked for external candidates in Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot.
Notices have also been issued to the Central Council of Homoeopathy, New Delhi, and Baba Farid University.
As a result of the order issued by the ministry, the selection committee conducting counselling sessions had to stop the process midway on May 30.
The petitioner stated that according to Amendment Regulations notification, 2001, published in the Government of India Gazette on November 5, 2001, the universities concerned might allow the admission of external candidates to appear in postgraduate examinations for eight years from the commencement of the Homeopathy (Post Graduate Degree Course) MD (Homoeopathy) (Amendment) Regulations, 2001, for three subjects.
But subsequently, the universities were directed not to conduct any counselling after 2007-2008 session. Baba Farid University, however, wrote back to the Department of AYUSH on May 23 that universities could give admissions for MD (Homoeopathy) course for external candidates till 2009
